5 tips for enjoying your outdoor space year-round

There are no two ways about it: we’re all spending a lot more time at home these days. But that doesn’t have to mean being stuck inside. Read our tips below, then start enjoying your outdoor spaces year-round!


Cover up

A great way to enjoy the outdoors no matter the weather is to set up a covered space. A gazebo, pergola or covered patio will offer a respite from the worst of mother nature’s wrath. Set up close to your patio door, this space becomes an extension of your living area, making your home look bigger. And if you have a wide glass door, like the Loft, the transition becomes even more seamless!

Conspire by the fire

What could be better than snuggling up by a crackling fire? On cold winter days and chilly summer nights, an outdoor fireplace will become your family’s go-to gathering place. Whether you opt for a modern propane fireplace or a more traditional firepit, one thing’s for sure—warm memories are in store!




Feelin’ hot, hot, hot!

Frozen toes make it hard to enjoy your outdoor space. The solution? Add a heater. For covered spaces, you can install on overhead heater. For more open spaces, try a standing heater.


Get comfy

Outdoor living spaces are popular no matter the season. Add comfy chairs and soft blankets and your space is ready for relaxing with a cup of cocoa! And don’t forget lighting! Add the finishing touch to your home hideaway with whimsical fairy lights.




Bring the park to you

You don’t have to go all the way to the park for some wintertime fun! Build your own backyard skating rink, sledding hill or igloo for the kids and kids-at-heart in your family to enjoy all winter long.
